INDIAN HISTORY ALONG THE PENOBSCOT 

The story of the Indians in the state of Maine is ever 
interesting. Especially is that of the region of the Penob- 
scot Valley. This race of men is the subject of pity as well 
as of hatred, hated for their cruelty, and pitied for their 
misfortune at the hands of their more civilized fellows, the 
Anglo-Saxons. 

We of a later day can look upon this race in a spirit of 
greater fairness than could our ancestors whose view of the 
red man was obscured by his late acts of rapine and plunder. 
As we read history let us remember that they were struggling 
to retain their own domain, to defend their "Fatherland" 
against the acts of the aggressive pale face whose deeds of 
power we delight to honor. 

TRIBES OF THE PENOBSCOT 

In our brief sketch we cannot attempt to trace in full the 
descent of the Indian tribes of this region. It is unnecessary. 
We will begin by stating that the Indians of the state of 
Maine generally were divided into the following tribes : The 



G HISTORICAL 

Sokokis, of the Saco river region; the Anasagunticooks or 
Abenakis, of the Androscoggin and lower Kennebec region; 
the Canibas,of the Norridgewock region; and the Warenocks 
of the eastern part of Maine as now known. Of these the 
latter are to us most interesting. Another almost sonony- 
mous name for this tribe is the Etchemin tribe. This tribe 
however included the Indians to the extreme headwaters of 
the Penobscot and the St. John River. This tribe is usually 
divided into three divisions, viz: those on the St. John; those 
of the Passamaquoddy: and the Tarratines of the Penob- 
scot, of whom we are most concerned. It is undoubtedly 
true that this tribe is the ancestor of the present remnant 
known as the Penobscot tribe. This tribeclaimed dominion 
over the entire Penobscot Valley from the headwaters to 
the sea. 

Concerning these Indians we here quote Mr. Williamson 
as follows : "They were a numerous, powerful and warlike 
people, more hardy and brave than their western enemies, 
whom they often plundered and killed, and according to 
Hubbard and Price, kept the Sycamores between the Piscat- 
aqua and the Mistic in perpetual fear. After the conquests 
and glory achieved in their battles with the Babshaba and his 
allies, they were not, like their enemies, wasted by disease 
and famine. They retained their valor animated by success 
and strengthened by the early use and supply of firearms, 
with which they were furnished by the French. The Tarra- 
tines ever manifested the greatest satisfaction in their inter- 
course with the French. No fortifications upon the penins- 
ula of Major Biguyduce, or buildings in the vicinity, excited 



HISTORICAL 7 

either fear or jealousy in them, for no rising plantations of 
the French threatened them with the loss of their lands or 
privileges. A barter of their furs for guns, ammunition and 
trinkets was managed with afreedotn and a directness which 
won and secured their attachments. Their companionable 
manners and volatile turn made the bonds strong and last- 
ing. The Tarratines have probably at different periods 
shifted the situation of their principal village. At the mouth 
of the Kenduskeag they had a common resting place when 

the white people first settled in that vicinity a place to 

which they were from habit strongly attached. Here the 
mouldering relics of human bodies, also flint spears, stone 
implements of labor, and Indian paint-dust have been acci- 
dentally disinterred after a burial ol an unknown period of 
time. The Tarratines were neutral in the war of the Revo- 
lution. In return Massachusetts, of which this region was 
a part at that time, protected them and prohibited all tres- 
pass upon their lands six miles in width on each side of the 
Penobscot, from the Head ol Tide upwards. The State 
from time to time bought large tracts of land from them till 
their territory was greatly diminished in size. These Indians 
when they were first seen by the whites, dwelt on both sides 
of the river aud in conjunction with the other tribes, roamed 
the whole of the state of Maine to the westward of this 
region. That they wandered far from their Penobscot home 
is evident. One historian asserts that the chief, Samoset 
who met the English at Plymouth with the words "Welcome 
Englishmen" in their own tongue was a Tarratine, and came 
from the Island of Monhegan. 



HISTORICAL 



WARS OF THE TARRATINES 

The Indian seemed to be fated to be the opponent of the 
Englishman; in religion, and personal make up the English- 
man was at a very serious disadvantage as compared with 
the Frenchman with his vivacious ways, and his attractive 
and impressive religious services. It is probable that the 
most of the English had serious intentions and an honest 
purpose to deal justly with the red man. Their charters 
called for religious training, forbade the sale of liquors to 
them and in everyway enjoined their training in the channels 
of civilization. But the Frenchman did all in his power to 
engender the spirit of animosity which was early started in 
the breast of the savage. Only one result could possibly be 
and that was war. But though the Indians were gradually 
drifting to hostilities they were hurled headlong into an 
open conflict by Weymouth's infamous seizure of five of their 
tribe in 1605. In 1631 or 1632 there was an outbreak 
between the Tarratines and their rivals but the conflict was 
not long prolonged nor bloody. The great war with the 
Mohawks about 1663 greatly discomforted the Tarratines, 
their dreaded enemies following them even to the banks of 
the Penobscot, burning their dwellings, and doing great 
harm in accordance with Indian warfare. Soon Small Pox 
devastated the tribe till it was almost exterminated. 

No further action in warfare was participated in by these 
Indians till the coming of Maj. Church in 1694, who laid 



HISTORICAL 9 

waste their fields and killed several of the natives. In 1722 
Lovewell's War opened and lasted three years. The war was 
thus named for Capt. Lovewell of Dunstable, the hero of the 
battle of Pequaket. The warfare- was carried to the Penob- 
scot Valley, and began at the arrival of Col. Thomas West- 
brook in 1723. This expedition was made up of two hun- 
dred and thirty. They scurried the coast of Alt. Desert in 
whaling boats and small vessels, and then proceeded up the 
Penobscot, anchoring at Marsh Island, it is stated, on March 
4 of that year. Here they left their boats and began a five 
days march through the forests near the river. At the Old 
Indian Fort which they found deserted the company 
destroyed everything of value. It is stated that this Fort 
was situated in Orono about six miles above Kenduskeag. 
After the destruction of the buildings about the Fort the 
whites returned. About two years later when the Tarratines 
had rebuilt the village, Capt. Joseph Heath with his com- 
pany crossed the country and attacked the village, laying it 
in ashes. No Indian was found. The village was never 
rebuilt, Oldtown being the place finally settled upon as their 
future abode. In October, 1723, a vessel landing at Mt. Des- 
ert, Capt. Coggswell commanding, was attacked by the 
Indians, the whole crew being captured. The wars being- 
over the Indians returned to their usual custom, hunting 
and fishing. Gradually, by treaty and by other courses the 
English came into possession of the lands along the Penob- 
scot. The Indians were greatly cheated in these deals, but 
managed to retain possession of certain tracts, and to this 
day have control of a large number of Islands in the Penob- 



10 HISTORICAL 

scot. They also have a large sum in the hands of the state 
which is holden as a perpetual fund for their support on 
which the state pays interest annually. In all the Indian 
tribe receives not far from $8,000 per year from different 
sources. The treatment of these Indians on the Penobscot 
by the state of Maine is in marked contrast with that of 
Massachusetts when this whole region was a part of that 
commonwealth. Everything of practical value to them is 
done for their protection and benefit. 



EARLY SETTLEMENT. 

The first white men to settle in the town of Orono came 
here in 1774 and their names were Jeremiah Colburn and 
Joshua Eayres. Concerning their early stay here in Orono 
no better account can be given than to state the petition 
which they presented to the General Court of Massachusetts 
concerning the lands they had improved along the Penob- 
scot River in this viciuity. The following is the petition : 
(From Orono Centennial History.) 

To the honourable the Council and House of Representa- 
tives of the State, the Colony Massachusetts Bay, in General 
Court assembled at Watertown : 

The Petition of Jeremiah Colburn and Joshua Eayres, 
of Penobscot River, humbly showeth: 

That your petitioners have been settlers on Penobscot 
River for a number of years, and that your petitioners wer e 



HISTORICAL 11 

obliged to quit their settlements, after making great im- 
provements on their lands, by order of proprietors, or per- 
sons pretending to own or claim the land, to their great 
damage, and had no place to go to*. Your petitioners went 
father up the river and settled on wild and unimproved 
lands, five miles above any settlement, where they thought 
no person could claim to turn them off. They built two 
dwelling houses, one half a saw mill, cleared a road to a 
meadow six miles, cleared another road to the inhabitants 
five miles, and cleared and improved a considerable tract 
of land, and built the other half of the mill by being assist- 
ed by other people. Your petitioners began to build said 
dwelling house and mill in July 1774, and in October follow- 
ing moved our families upon the land, and there continued 
until May following; in the mean time the Indians of the 
Penobscot tribe were continually at our houses, and we 
were always ready to assist them in anything they requested, 
and always welcomed to any provisions they desired, which 
your petitioners have given them to the value of thirty 
pounds, lawful money, at least, and were always kindly 
treated by us. And in May, 1775, your petitioners, being- 
apprehensive of some danger from reports that the Cana- 
dian ladians intended to assist the people of Great Britian 
that might come across the country and destroy us, thought 
ifc most safe to move in to the inhabitants. Y 7 our petition- 
ers moved their families and effects and remained from May 
to August following, and one of us from May 1775 to June, 
1776. All this while your petitioners were urged by the 
Indians to return to our settlements, and promised we 



12 HISTORICAL 

should enjoy our possessions, and they would protect and 
support us in the same; but since being acquainted that they 
had a promise of the lands from the Massachusetts Congress 
in June, 1775, we would not move again until they gave us 
their word that we should enjoy peaceably our possessions. 
In dependence of the same, we moved our families up the 
time above mentioned, and since have heard they have re- 
solved, in council amongst themselves, that every family 
shall be removed above the line that was settled by the Con- 
gress in June 1775. They say they have a promise when the 
General Court next sits, that there will be an order to turn 
us off, in consequence of which they have told all the inhabit- 
ants within their limits to get in readiness to move off 
when they gather their harvests. Your petitioners are al- 
ways ready to comply with any rule, order, or regulation, 
as your Honours shall direct. Your petitioners would in- 
form your Honours that we have spent all our substance in 
this settlement, and which renders us so poor, we are not 
able to move our families away. 

Your petitioners most humbly pray your Honours to 
take their difficult circumstances into your wise considera- 
tion, and grant them such relief as you in your great wis- 
dom' shall see meet. And your petitioners, as in duty bound 
shall ever pray. 

Jeremiah Colburn, 
Joshua Eayres. 
Penobscot Hiver, 16th August, 1776. 



HISTORICAL 13 

Sept. 5th, 1776. — The Committee to whom was referred 
the consideration of the above petition, have attended to 
that service, and beg leave to report that the petitioners 
have leave to withdraw the same. 

Jedediah Preble, per order. 

Mr. Colburn and Mr. Eayres were, however, never dis- 
turbed in their possessions. As appears in the above petition 
the first houses were built in this town in 1774. 

Mr. Eayres owned the island in the Basin which has been 
known to all later citizens of the town as "Eayres' Island." 
This island he sold and removed to Passadumkeag in 1800. 
His daughter, Esther, born April 30,1777, was the first white 
child born in this town. 

Mr. Colburn continued to reside in town till his death, 
which occurred in 1808. It is believed that his birth place 
was Dracut, Mass. The date of birth is set at 1726. He 
married Fannie Hodgkins and they were living in Brewer as 
early as 1773 for on that year Mr. Colburn came to Orono 
and viewed the prospects for his future home. The follow- 
ing year he moved here accompanied by John Marsh who 
later married his daughter Sarah. 

In 1775 when, as we have seen heretofore, Mr. Colburn 
and Mr. Eayres moved out of this town, it is said that they 
buried their household effects and crossed the strip of coun- 
try to the Kennebec valley and decended the river Kennebec 
to Pittston. Later he was at Camden where he was taken 
prisoner by the British and carried to Castine. On an ex- 
change he returned to Orono. Here he found that his house 



14 HISTORICAL 

had been destroyed but that his goods were still in existence. 
Mr. Colbnrn owned a large part of the land which is the site 
of the present village of Orono. 

John Marsh, the "Interpreter," a son-in-law of Jeremiah 
Colburn was born in Mendon, Mass., in 1749, and came to 
Orono in 1774 as noted previously with Mr. Colburn. Mr. 
Marsh became the friend and confidante of the tribe of 
Indians at this point. He lived always peaceably and tran- 
quilly with them — having won their confidence and intense 
regard. They made him a large grant of land, known to 
this day as Marsh Island which grant was confirmed to him 
by the state. He had obtained as a hunter and guide some 
knowledge of the land before coming here. He was also 
familiar with much of the region in central Maine. He accom- 
panied Messrs. Colburn and Eayres to Winslow and Pittston 
when they covered that route and he later piloted a com- 
pany of troops through the forest to that same point. 
Returning, he piloted the force of the U. S. Corvette, Adams, 
from Hampden, after the disgraceful abandonment of the 
defense at that point. He died in this town in 1814. 

Captain Abram Tourtellotte, born in 1744, came to this 
town from Rhode Island in 1781, and settled on the Bangor 
road on the Page farm. Here he made his clearing, and 
remained thirty-eight years till his death in 1819. 

Samuel White was born in Mendon, Mass., in 1760, and 
came to this town in 1784. He married Fanny, a daughter 
of Jeremiah Colburn. He settled near Upper Stillwater, but 
moved to the island on which for many years his son, Daniel 
White, lived. His death occurred in 1829, on the 19th of 



HISTORICAL 15 

January. His wife's death occurred less than a year pre- 
vious on April 2, 1828. 

Daniel White above mentioned, was a very prominent 
lumberman. He was always a very competent business man 
and was respected for his strict honesty. Mr. Washburn 
said of him that he was perhaps the only man on the Penob- 
scot river, previous to 1850 who carried on a lumbering 
business for ten or more years who preserved his credit. 

Col. Daniel Jameson a shipmaster by profession, a native 
of the town of Freeport, Maine, was another early settler of 
this town, coming here in 1785, where he married Betsy Col- 
burn. Capt. Jameson was lost in a ship at sea during a 
voyage in November, 1798, from Boston to Bangor. 

Joseph Page came here about the time of the close of the 
War or a little later, from Rhode Island. He settled on the 
Bangor Road on a farm later occupied by James Page. It 
is said that during the Revolution he lived in a house near 
Mt. Hope in Bangor whence he was driven by the British 
for refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the British 
Crown. His house was burned to the ground, and the stock 
stolen and driven away. 

One of the inteiesting characters of the town of Orono 
and one without which the history of the town would lose 
much of its interest, and amusing side, at least, is Antoine 
Lachance. He was born in Quebec in 1750 or a year later. 
A previous writer says of him: "In his declaration made 
August 28, 1832, to obtain a pension, he says 1751, but in 
deposition given in 1837, he says, he was nine years old 
when Quebec was taken by Wolfe. He was thus twenty-four 



16 HISTORICAL 

or five years of age when Montgomery made his attack upon 
that city. He also states that he enlisted in the army of the 
United States in 1775 with Capt. Livingstone's company, 
and served in Col. Livingstone's regiment; that the troops 
were under the command of Gen. Arnold; that he was taken 
prisoner in June 1776, escaped, re-enlisted in the service" 
continuing a very creditable record, closing his services with 
serving under Maj. Ulmer at Castine. Here William Colburn, 
the elder, said he served with him, in the same company. 

Lachanceleft the service at the close of the war, married, 
and removed to Orono, not far from 1795. As he was known 
by his Christian name, as a general rule, his children were 
not known by Lachance but by Antoine, and the name was 
dropped in Orono after this generation. He is remembered 
for his many peculiarites. He was nob renowned for his reli- 
ability, yet was kindly of disposition, and very genial of 
nature. He died in this town on August 6, 1839. 

Robert, John, Joshua and Joseph Treat came to the 
town of Orono from Frankfort before the year 1790. They 
were fishermen and lumbermen largely, by occupation. The 
family has so far as we know no descendants in town at this 
time. 

''William Lunt moved into what is nowOldtown as early 
as 1785/' 

Abram Freese accompanied by three sons, John, Retire 
W. and Isaac, came here from Bangor in 1790. Mr. Freese 
is noted as being the first settler to erect a framed house in 
this town. He settled on a lot on the Stillwater road, after- 
ward occupied so many years by his son Retire W. who lived 



HISTORICAL 17 

and died on the same farm mentioned above. Retire 
W. died in 1860. He married Fanny White, daughter of 
Samuel White, Esq. He was a member of the Maine Legis- 
lature in 1839. 

Another early settler in Orono was ('apt. David Read 
from Topsham. He was the builder of the second frame 
house in town, building the same in 1800. The location on 
which he built was very near that of the town hall burned in 
1891. The house was used also as the first hotel in town 
run by Perez Graves. The hist meeting for the election of 
town officials was held at this house on April 7, 1806. In 
1786 Capt. Read built a mill on the site of the old stone 
mill. 

About 1795 Andrew Webster came to Orono. He 
became one of the very substantial citizens of the town and 
was prominent in her affairs for many years. He was born 
in Salisbury, Mass., came to Brunswick in early life, later to 
Topsham where he married Martha Craue, moved toCastine, 
from there to Bangor and lastly to Orono. He died in 1807. 
His son, Col. Ebenezer Webster, was destined to hold a 
prominent place in business life, and in the hearts of his 
fellows. As a business man his enterprise was felt far 
beyond the borders of his own community and along the 
Penobscot for many miles he was heavily concerned in many 
branches of business — chiefly lumbering. He was a very per- 
severing man and though not always successful his fierce 
determination forged him ahead and success was usually his 
at the end. He was known most favorably as a neighbor, 
as he was one of the warmest hearted of men. He enter- 



02 



18 HISTORICAL 

tained very largely for his time, and his house was always 
made the abode of cheerfulness and geniality which won the 
everlasting respect and regard of his vast number of friends 
and acquaintances. 

Joseph Inman was also one oi the early arrivals here. 
He occupied the farm later owned by John Reed. Some 
descendants of his are among our population today. 

In 1792 or 1793, Capt. Francis Wyman came here. He 
was a native of Pnippsburg. He married Martha, a daugh- 
ter of Andrew Webster. His death occurred in Feb. 1857 on 
the farm he had so long occupied on the Upper Stillwater 
road. 

Another of the early comers was Archibald McPheters 
who came from Arrowsic to Bangor in 1771 and to Orono 
in 1795 and settled on the Bangor road. 

William Duggaus was an early settler who came here 
before 1800 and occupied the farm next to John Read's on 
the Bangor road. 

There were several families of Spencers in town in the 
early days but little information is known concerning them. 

Ard Godfrey came here in 1798 from Taunton, Mass., 
and settled on the Stillwater road nearest the Oldtown line. 
He was a millwright and handed his trade down to his sons. 
He was a respected and popular citizen. His death occurred 
in 1843. 

George Ring, senior, came to Orono in 1800 and occu- 
pied the house built by Joshua Eayres when the latter moved 
to Passadumkeag. Mr. Ring was born in Georgetown, 
Maine, in 1759, and married Margaret Foster. He died in 



HISTORICAL 19 

1812 and his wife the year following;. 

We have given the above few items gathered from 
various sources chiefly from Mr. Washburn's highly interest- 
ing; and instructive address in the hope they may be of some 
service in perpetuating- the names and points of iuterest in 
relation to the men and wom^u who paved the way for our 
civilization. We can never properly appreciate the perse- 
verance and determination which were the lot of the pioneer. 
Well did they build in both matter and in mind. Thelessons 
their lives havefor us is that we emulate in our day and gen- 
eration, some, at least, of the sound virtues and judgment 
they so signally developed and handed down to us. 



20 HISTORICAL 



INCORPORATION 

The town of Orono was styled Stillwater Plantation for 
many years In fact for some score of years previous to 
1806 this name clung to what political organization there 
was at this point. We have had brought to our notice the 
statement that the place was first called "Dead Water," but 
one Owen Madden, a discharged British soldier who taught 
school here for several years, suggested that the present 
name would be far preferable. Thus came the present term, 
Stillwater. 

This name has had in more recent years a still farther 
change, being changed to two terms, viz., Upper and Lower 
Stillwater. The former is applied to the village up the river 
some two miles to distinguish it from the first and principal 
village. 

On the 12th of March, 180(5, the General Court of Mas- 
sachusetts took action upon the incorporation of Stillwater 
into a town. The act was entitled as follows: "An Act to 
incorporate the Plantation heretofore called Stillwater, in 
the County of Hancock, into a Town by the Name of Orono. 
This name was taken in honor of the Tarratine chief who is 
so favorably remembered in our history as a friend of the 
whites in and out of season. 

At the time of the incorporation there was no Census of 
the town in existence. It is estimated at about 300 souls. 



HISTORICAL 21 

Richard Wjnslo.w, justice of the Peace, called the first 
town meeting for choice of officers in a warrant dated March 
27, 1806, aud the meeting occurred on April 7th following. 
As has been mentioned elsewhere, the meeting was held at 
the house of Capt. David Read. The officers chosen at this 
meeting were: 

Aaron Bliss, town clerk; Richard Winslow, Moses Aver- 
ill and John Read, selectmen; Andrew Webster, treasurer; 
and Ard Godfrey, constable and collector; Allen Bliss, John 
Read, William Col burn and Ebenezer Webster, hogreeves, 
fenceviewers and field-drivers. 

The town raised the sum of seventy-five dollars to pay 
town charges, one thousand dollars for highways, and noth- 
ing for the support of schools. They voted to build three 
pounds and to fence the cemetery. Mr. Washburn mirthfully 
remarks in his Centennial address: "Having made these pro- 
visions to prevent the straying of the cattle and the dead 
they seem to have thought it reasonable to let the children 
run at large/' 

The year 1807 witnessed the recording of Orono's vote 
in favor of separation from Massachusetts by a vote of 37 
tol. 

Later Jackson Davis was a delegate to Portland in 1819 
to form a Constitution for the now proposed new state. 

After the rival villages of Stillwater and Oldtown, as 
they came to be called, had grown to importance in business 
and population, they were, in 1840, amicably divided and 
two separate towns established. The act of division and 
incorporation was passed March 16, 1840. In this division 



22 HISTORICAL 

more than two-thirds of the territory was set off to form 
Oldtown, leaving Orono one of the smallest townships in the 
state. At the U. 8. census taken the following June, the pop- 
ulation of Orono was 1521, of Oldtown, 2345— or 3866 in 
both towns. By act of the Legislature of 1841, Orono aud 
Glenburn were classed together for Representatives, and 
Israel Washburn, Jr., (afterward Governor) was elected for 
1842. 

Previous to the division of the town a village corpora- 
tion, authorized by the Legislature Feb. 16, 1837, had been 
maintained, but after 1840, being no longer necessary, it was 
discontinued.

SCHOOL ITEMS 

The early schools of Orono, like those of other Maine 
towns, were established uDder the most difficult circumstan- 
ces, but were, nevertheless, established upon a basis that has 
developed one of the best working school systems in the 
state. 

We cannot do better than to cast a glance toward the 
typical common school as known in Maine in the early days. 
Even as soon as our forefathers, almost always of Puritani- 
cal extraction, had located themselves in the forests of the 
Pine Tree State and begun their efforts of erecting churches, 
they made provisions for the common schools. They, in com- 
mon with us of today, considered education the bulwark of 
our instutions, the instutions for the establishment of which 
they had fought and bled. They knew, therefore, better 
than we how much depended upon the proper guidance of 
the newly established government. They saw their liberties 
and prosperity wrapped up in the new government which 
Washington had said was "one today and thirteen tomor- 
row." Is it a strange thing that these men who so well 
understood the significance of these tr\ing years, should so 
thoroughly grasp at the thought that in the education of 
the masses lay their only hope of ultimate success? No, they 
saw well their duty, and as pioneers prepared to meet it. A 
room in the little log cabin became the university of the 
wilderness, and, humble as were the first efforts, mighty 



HISTORICAL 27 

results came from them. From out of these rough low- 
roofed structures walked men who were yet to meet the rep- 
resentatives of the courts of P]urope, in the battlefield, in 
diplomacy, and in scores of other capacities from which they 
emerged unscathed. This system went on until it became 
almost a necessary thing for a man to reach the president's 
chair that he be able to present a career begun in the "little 
red schoolhouse" in the back-woods hamlet. It was not 
that the people loved wealth and culture less, but that they 
loved the more the homely virtues inspired by the health}' 
atmosphere of the country. As we look back today over 
the progress of our school system, we dwell with pride upon 
the record it has made. But this system, like all others, was 
expected to advance, and it has advanced. The town of 
Orono has, in common with other towns, reared the homely 
structures on the hillsides and at the cross roads, hired male 
teachers at $10 to $ 15 a month, and female teachers at 75 
cents to $ 1.50 a week, and this with the "board round" pro- 
vision. 

We are informed that the first school house erected in 
the village was situated on the lot next the Congregational 
church. This two story house was afterwards moved to the 
lot just south of the Universalist church where it now stands. 
This was built in 1828. The next was the old brick school 
house on the Webster side. Next was a red school house 
near the sight of the present railroad station on the lot now 
occupied for the same purpose. The next was erected on 
Main St., and the fifth on High St. This is now used as a 
grammar school. The old high school building, erected in 



28 HISTORICAL 

1861 is now used for the grammar grades, the building hav- 
ing been fitted up for the purpose. During the last year the 
excellent new high school building was erected on Main St. 
at a cost of $ 17,000. This is well equipped to do valuable 
service to the succeeding generation. The new Pine St. 
school house was erected during 1901, at a cost of from 
three to four thousand dollars. 

There are now seven school buildings located in the vil- 
lage, and three rural schools in the town. All are in good 
condition and doing work that is a credit to those who have 
the matter in charge, and to those who have dispensed edu- 
cation and administered the rod during the lasthalfcentury. 

This was about the first town in the state to adopt the 
graded system. This was done previous to 1850. There 
are four grades. The town is justly proud of her schools, 
and of the men and women who have here laid the founda- 
tion for a higher course, for which they need not leave town, 
and of those who have here fitted for lives of usefulness and 
honor. 

UNIVERSITY OF MAINE 

In common with most all other colleges of its class inthe 
United States, the Maine State College of Agriculture and 
Mechanic Arts had its origin in the well-known act of Con- 
gress providing for the establishment of the land-grant col- 
leges approved by President Lincoln, July 2, 1862. The first 
session of the legislature of Maine alter the passage of the 
act was in the winter of 1862-8. The late Hon. Abner 



HISTORICAL 29 

Coburn, whose name is so intimately and beneficently asso- 
ciated with the entire history of this college, was governor 
of the state. In his opening message to the legislature he 
called attention to the act with cBaracteristic brevity, as 
follows: "There can be no doubt, I think, that vast benefit 
will flow from this act, and I have no hesitation in urging 
upon you the prompt acceptai ce of its terms and condi- 
tions." Now that the subject was before the legislature, the 
question of acceptance was the first to confront its members. 
It was a new problem. The average legislator approached 
it warily. The State Board of Agricultnre favored accept- 
ance. The gift tendered the state was prospectively valu- 
able, and must not be lost by default. The legisbiture voted 
to accept the grant. This was an important step, because 
such acceptance pledged the state to the support <»f at least 
one college "to promote the liberal and practical education 
of the industrial classes." — Hist, of Education in Maine 

The next step was to choose a location. Liberal offers 
were held out by both Colby college and by Bowdoin college 
to unite with them; but through the influence of Hon. S. L. 
Goodale, secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, Hon. 
Phineas Barnes, and Dr. Ezekiel Holmes, editor of the Maine 
Farmer, it was decided to establish a separate institution. 
The bill for its organization was prepared by Hon. Phineas 
Barnes, and thirteen men, one from each county in the state, 
were chosen as trustees. The first meeting of the board of 
trustees was held at the State House in Augusta, April 25, 
1865, and organized by the choice of S. L. Goodale, clerk; 
Hannibal Hamlin, president of the board; and Phineas 



30 HISTORICAL 

Barnes, treasurer. 

The choice of a location was yet to be decided; and, 
withal, was a delicate problem. Lands in different towns 
were examined, and in September, 1865, a motion to locate 
the college in Topsham was lost by a vote of 6 to 5. At a 
meeting at Augusta, January 25, 1866, the board voted to 
locate at Orono, the vote being 8 in favor and 7 against it. 
The farm on which the college is located was given b} r the 
towns of Orono and Old Town and cost $11,000. It is located 
on Marsh Island, on the Stillwater River, one mile from the 
village of Orono, and nine miles from the city of Bangor. 
The land originally constituted two large farms, one of which 
was settled and occupied for half a century by the French 
Canadian, Antoine Lachance, who was a famous character 
and served under Montgomery at Quebec. 

The next move was to reduce the number of trustees to a 
more wieldy body. This was effected, and the new board, 
consisting of seven members selected for fitness rather than 
location, was organized and Hon. Abner Coburn chosen 
president, S. L. Goodale, clerk, and Isaiah Stetson, treasurer. 

Many difficulties confronted the new board, but gradually 
they were removed or surmounted. The two existing farm- 
houses were fixed up to serve, one for the first professor and 
the other for the temporary residence of the farm superin- 
tendent. Wingate Hall was erected, but did not reach com- 
pletion until the following year. 

The first class, numbering 12 students, was admitted 
September 1-1, 1868. Samuel Johnson, A. M., had been cho- 
sen farm superintendent and instructor in agriculture, and 



HISTORICAL 31 

Merritt C. Female, A. M., professor of mathematics. At the 
beginning of the second year Stephen F. Peckbam, A. M., of 
Rhode Island, was added to the faculty in the capacity of 
professor of chemistry. Additions* were frequently made 
thereafter so that by the close of the year 1870 no less than 
11 different individuals were connected with the institution 
in one capacity or another in connection with the faculty. 
Military instruction was required by the act of endowment 
and was first given by Capt. Henry E. Sellers, of Bangor. 

EXPERIMENT STATION 

By virtue of an act of Congress known as the Hatch Bill, 
approved March 2, 1887, and an act of the Maine legislature 
in conformity therewith, a department in the college was 
established in 1887, designated the Maine p]xperimental 
Station. This department receives from the National 
Government $15,000 annually lor its support, and has for 
its object the investigations into agricultural science and 
experimentation with reference to practical agriculture. 

In the year 1897, the college was changed to a univer- 
sity, and the name •'University of Maine" adopted. 

Thus was this important institution established, and it 
has continued to increase its efficiency and resources until 
now it is one of the most effective schools in the country. 
The faculty is large and its individual members fully realize 
the importance of keeping up the high standard of scholar- 
ship which is so well established.

CHURCH AFFAIRS 

The early church was the principal, and often the only, 
social organization during; the days when the homes of the 
scattered settlers were separated by the forest, and only 
connected by bridle paths marked by the spotted line. It 
was then the custom for every one to attend sacred worship, 
and to look after the occasional delinquent in the matter, 
tything men were chosen at the town meetings. The differ- 
ent denominations generally had a small following in each 
locality who agreed to erect a meeting-house for their mut- 
ual use, each furnishing a preacher of their choice at their 
stipulated time. Previous to this the services were held 
either at the homes of the members, or in the schoolhouse in 
the center of the settlement. 

METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

The Methodists were the first to gain much strength as 
a denomination in Orono. They held a Quarterly meeting 
here in 1829 at the house of Mrs. Daniel Jameson. At this 
time they were holding regular services and a well organized 
society. 

The church was made a station in 1829, with a regular 
pastor. Previous to this it had formed a part of Bangor 
circuit. In 1833 and '34, during the pastorate of the Rev. 
Mark Trafton, the church building was erected. During the 
pastorate of the Rev. Caleb Fuller, 1836-8 a parsonage was 



HISTORICAL 33 

built and large additions made to the membership. The 
organ was placed in the church in 1854. The church build- 
in g was repaired during the pastorate of the Rev. J. W. Day, 
in 1867-8, and again thoroughly remodeled and enlarged in 
1891 nnder the leadership of the pastor, Rev. F. H. Morgan. 
The old parsonage was supplanted by the present handsome 
and modern house in 1901, during the pastorate of the Rev. 
W. B. Dukeshire. The present membership numbers 140, 
with a large constituency, and a Sunday School numbering 
about 200 officers, teachers and scholars, and an Epworth 
League under efficient leadership. The officers of the church 
consist of the Rev. Horace B Haskell, Ph. B., graduate of 
the East Maine Seminary, Taylor University, and Garrett 
Biblical Institute. He received his ordination as Elder in 
1900, and assumed his present charge in April, 1904, com- 
ing to Orono from a most successful pastorate in Dexter. 
Prof. C. B. Woods, at the head of the State Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station, University of Maine, is Superintendent of 
the Sunday School. The board of trustees comprises H. J. 
Woods, president; F. L. Russell, Secretary; Wm. Bolstridge, 
Albert White, A. F. Lewis, W. A French, C. J. Shaw, F. C. 
Park and Alfred Clifford. The board of Stewards comprises 
Wm. Bolstridge, H. J. Woods, Joshua Deering, F. L Rus- 
sell, K. P. Harrington, W. A.Spenser, Alfred Clifford, Eugene 
Haley, C. D. Woods, J. H. Huddleston, J. T. Beale, and C. J. 
Shaw. The president of the Ladies' Aid Society is Mrs. 
Thomas Gilbert.

PROFESSIONAL MEN 

HON. ISRAEL WASHBURN 

Israel Washburn. LL. D , was born in Livermore, June 
6, 1813. He was educated for the bar, and settled in Orono 
in December, 1834. He contiuued his practice until about 

1860. He was a member of the state legislature in 1842 
and representative from the Penobscot district in the 32nd, 
33rd, 34th, 35th, and 36th Congresses. He resigned Jan. 1, 

1861, having been elected governor of the State of Maine 
in 1860. He was re-elected in September, 1861, and declined 
a subsequent election. In 1863 he was appointed by Presi- 
dent Liucoln collector of the port of Portland, and held that 
office for many years. He was a Universalist, and a presi- 
dent of the board of trustees of Tufts College. At the cen- 
tenial celebration of the settlement of Orono he delivered 
the address which was a valuable historical account of the 
town, and was subsequently published. The same year he 
also published "Notes on Livermore" which is a valuable 
historical account of that, his native town. He died May, 
15, 1883. 

He came from the most noted family of Maine. He had 
six brothers and three sisters. Of the brothers, all became 
prominent especinlly in the public service. In the Andro- 
scoggin County History we learn that this one family has 
given to the nation four members of Congress from four 
different states, one secretary of state, two foreign minis- 
ters, two governors of two different states, one major gen- 
eral in the United States Army, and one captain in the U. S. 
army.

MILITARY MATTERS 

The military history of a town, however brief, is a source 
oi much interest and satisfaction. Of interest to the pres- 
ent generation and of satisfaction to the past. The story 
of the soldier who risks home, and as-sociatious, and busi- 
ness opportunities, and in a large number of cases, life itself, 
performs a service which is destined to live and be appre- 
ciated b} T the most of his couutrymeu so long as there shall 
be a semblance of appreciation in the hearts of the citizen. 
No greater service can be rendered than to risk ones life for 
the welfare of the country. None is more deserving of the 
best rewards of which the nation is capable. 

The history of Orono in this particular, is one of satis- 
faction. A most patriotic population faced the propositions 
of the civil war and met them manfully. The War of the 
Revolution was in full blast ere the woods of Orono had been 
accustomed to the ring of the settler's axe, and consequently 
the place had no part in the conflict as a municipality. But 
several of her citizens who came here later, and whom from 
the time of their arrival were so closely united to the inter- 
ests of the town, that we feel like claiming the honor of their 
services. 

During the War of 1812, and especially at the battle of 
Hamden, was this town well represented. When the British 
came up the Penobscot to Hamden, a company of militia 
went from Orono, under the command of Captain (after- 



36 HISTORICAL 

wards Colonel) Ebenezer Webster. It is said this company 
was the last to leave the field, and that it received the order 
to do so with intense disgust. 

CIVIL WAR 

At the breaking out of the Civil War this town responded 
to the first call for troops, and ever after wpre her quotas 
promptly and cheerfully filled by the voluntary enlistment of 
her noble men, whose services on the battlefield speak of the 
patriotism and zeal which prompted their voluntary enlist- 
ment, and the sacrifices which they made, that they might 
render their country their best services at the time of her 
greatest peril. 

To these men who so nobly and successfully gave their 
services is due the everlasting respect and honor of a free 
and united country. No generation of its citizens should fail 
to recognize the value of the services they rendered, nor that 
to them is due the fact that today we are living in the grand- 
est country now in existence. 

The following is a list of those who enlisted from Orono.

INDUSTRIAL ACCOUNT 

Here, as in other Maine towns, the first industry neces- 
sarily was the manufacture of lumber, from the ubiquitous 
forest tree. Mills for this purpose were located on the brooks 
and smaller rivers, and here this industry grew to be the 
principal commercial feature to our hardy and industrious 
ancestry, as well as to succeeding generations. Connected 
with these early saw mills there was generally a grist mill 
for preparing meal from the Indian corn which formed the 
staple source of subsistence in the pioneer days. 

The first mill to be constructed in Orono— that referred 
to by Messrs. Colburn and Eayres in their petition — was 
built, it is said, on the south side of the Stillwater, near a 
small island, not far from the location of the old match fac- 
tory. Later, Capt. David Read built another saw mill on 
thesame location. Gradually the number of mills multiplied, 
among others being the old Greely mill, built by John Gor- 
don about 1805. The old stone mill, located on the right 
where Capt. Read had built a mill in 178G, was erected at an 
early date, and was rebuilt in 1817 by Col. Eben Webster, 
Jr. Col. Webster was engaged in the business of lumbering 
from an early age almost to the time of his death in 1855. 
He erected and operated several saw mills here, being one of 
the leading men of that industry. 

Another of the pioneer lumbermen, and one of the most 
successful of all who have followed this important industry 
in this town, was Daniel White. Mr. Washburn says, "He 



40 HISTORICAL 

was, perhaps, the only man on Penobscot river who, prior to 
1850, had carried on for a period of ten or more years, the 
business of lumbering, and always preserved his credit intact 
and unsuspected." Col. Webster and John H. Pillsburyvvere 
often partners with him. 

John Benuoch was another of the early lumbermen, who 
with Mr. Harrison, operated mills here prior to either of the 
last mentioned mnn. Asa VV. Babcock came here from 
Augusta soon after 1820 and entered into the lumber manu- 
facturing business. He controlled considerable capital and 
was a man of exceptional ability. For a term of ten years, 
he was more extensively engaged in the lumbering trade, 
and especially in its manufacture, than any other man in the 
town, and was scarcely rivaled in the county or state. 

The great land speculation occurred during the years 
between 1832 and 1836. The growth of Orono at this time 
was fabulous. Lots in the village rose to city prices, but the 
excitement reached its climax in Old Town. The cause of 
this was the run upon the great wealth of the forest timber 
which would be here converted into lumber and shipped for 
the foreign trade. The excitement cleared away in 1836, 
when the bubble burst, r and the industrial situation was]left 
in a critical condition. 

A joint stock organization, called the Stillwater Iron 
Foundry, was formed in 1835 or 1836 and built a foundry 
not far from the site of the old Ham matt Mills. This com- 
pany continued only for two or three years. In the fall of 
1837 the Bangor Lower Stillwater Mill Co., a concern doing 
a big business previously, passed into the hands of the North 



HISTORICAL 41 

American Lumber Co., but notwithstanding its able mana- 
gers it was forced to the wall in the general crisis. 

The mills on the island end of the Babcock dam were 
built in 1832. They were destroyed by fire in 1833, 
but were immediately rebuilt and extended. The Ham- 
matt Mills, Union block, Six-Saw block, the Perkins block, 
Island block and the first mills at the basin were all 
built between 1832 and 1838, and most of them in 1834, 
1835, and L836. 

LATER INDUSTRIES 

The first mill built at "the Basin," at the south end of 
the village, was taken out by flood about 1846. The mill 
now operated there was built soon after this by a New York 
firm and superintended by Gideon Mayo. James Walker 
purchased the mill soon after 1850 and it is now operated 
by his sons as a wood working establishment. 

Where is now located the cant-dog factory, stood the 
grist mill and sash and blind factory of John Bennoch, 
erected during the exciting times of the thirties. Mr. Ben- 
noch sold the plant to E. Mansfield & Co. who are doing an 
extensive business at the present time. The saw mill on the 
island was built by the Orono Pulp and Paper Co. about 
1890. This plant was leased to Bangor men for a time. 
This firm failed in business, and the original concern is now 
operating it. B. B. Thatcher is president and R. W. Saw3 r er, 
treasurer. About eleven years ago J. Fred, Eben C, and 
Alden D. Webster bought a saw mill and on the site erected 
the paper mill known as the Webster Mills. Later they sold 



42 HISTORICAL 

their property to the International Paper Co., who have 
increased their capacity by erecting a ground wood mill last 
year. William Engel & Co's saw mill is one of the impor- 
tant industries in the town at the present time. This loca- 
tion he purchased of P. D. Webster, but has greatly im- 
proved the plant by reconstructing the mill. 

The first match factory was established here about 
twenty-five years ago by John M. Cha^e; and the manufac- 
ture of oars, paddles, pickpoles, etc., was established by a 
Mr. Shaw. 

During the busiest days in the town of Orono there were 
as many as ten or twelve saw mills in operation at one 
time, furnishing regular employment to over GOO men. The 
manufacture of pulp and paper has in part superseded the 
manufacture of lumber, and is now one of the leading com- 
mercial industries of the state of Maine. The water privi- 
leges of Orono are equal to any in the state. The town is 
increasing, and her powers and possibilities are gradually 
being developed. The future prospects of the town as a com- 
mercial center are as bright and promising, to the candid 
mind, as at any time during her entire history.

Census of Onono 
1904 

The population oi the town of Orono . has been ar- 
ranged herewith in families where that arrangement has 
been possible. In these families, in addition to the resi- 
dent living members, the names of the non-resident mem- 
bers are included. It should be borne in mind that this 
plan does not include the names of all former residents 
of this town, as the names of the non-residents appear 
only when one or both the parents are still living in the 
town. At the end of the Census will be found the names 
of non-residents with their present addresses, when such 
addresses have been given to us. The non-residents are 
indicated by the (*). 

Following the names of the population is the occu- 
pation. To designate the occupations we have used the 
more common abbreviations and contractions. Some of 
these follow : Farmer— far; carpenter— car; railroad ser- 
vice— R R ser; student, a member of an advanced institution 
of learning— stu; pupil, a member of a lower grade of schools 
— pi; housework— ho; laborer— lab; physician and surgeon— 
phy & sur; clergyman — clerg; merchant— mer; teacher — tr; 
blacksmith— blk; clerk— el; book-keeper— bk kpr; lawyer-

International Paper Co— I P Co; Eagles Mill— E's M; Mans- 
field's Cant-dog Factory— M's C F; Shaw's Oar Shop or Fac-

This Census was taken expressly for this work during 
the summer of 1904, by Messrs. Remick and Bean.

APPENDIX 



THE UNIVERSALIST CHURCH 

This account was not received early enough to print under the chapter 
on Churches. 

In February of the year 1843, an organization was 
effected in the town of Orono, for building a Universalist 
Church, and on the 24th of the subsequent August, "The 
First Universalist Society in Orono," was formed. 

The Church was built in 1843-4 and dedicated in August, 
1844; was enlarged in 1851, and further altered and re- 
paired in 1863. Tn the year 1851, a parsonage was also 
built. The property is valued at present at the sum of 
$8,700. 

The first pastor was Rev. L. P. Rand, who had been 
active in organizing the Society, but the first settled min- 
ister was Rev. Henry C. Leonard, who ministered to the 
parish from 1847 to 1855. 

The present pastor is Rev. Nellie Mann Opdale who 
entered upon the work Sept. 7, 1903. 



We wish to impress upon the minds of the 
good people of Orono that we are ever mindfull of 
their wants. In regard to dress, you can get any> 
thing you want here, from a" shoestring to a suit of 
clothes — as for prices, we'll convince you that we 
are below all competitors.
